It was just over a year ago when I 'discovered' Malcolm Holcombe - I now have 6 of his albums! My clear favourites are his last 2 (full length) for Echo Mountain Records - 'Not Forgotten' and 'For the Mission Baby'. 'To Drink the Rain' is a bit different from those 2 albums - although not without a few darker and edgier songs, and lyrically still sharp, many songs on this album have an easier country feel to them.

The main difference that I noticed immediately is the playing - it is immaculately polished, and whilst it is enjoyable to listen to, by comparison it does lack a certain amount of bite. The album sees the return of Jared Tyler (dobro and occasional electric slide) and David Roe (upright bass). Fiddle (Luke Bulla) is far more prominent, and the drumming (Bobby Kallus) is less emphatic (more feathery and light). 2 tracks feature mandolin from Shelby Eicher, and Andrew Hardin plays acoustic lead guitar on 2 songs. As usual, Malcolm accompanies himself on acoustic guitar which injects a little more edge into the proceedings from time to time; and as before, there is little or no layering - so each individual instrument can be heard with ease.

All songs are written by Malcolm, and this time around, many strike me as being more introspective - perhaps drawing upon his own personal experiences. Some comments about my favourites (including my personal interpretations of the lyrics):

ONE LEG AT A TIME - The album kicks off with this ragtime flavoured country-blues. Malcolm delivers the song with a touch of wry humour, and all concerned sound like they're having a good time. Great vocals from Malcolm and, towards the end, there's a terrific (but rather brief) percussion solo - helped along by a selection of assorted grunts from Malcolm.
